On our trip it was BIG chunky pit metal with big rocks to tear a hole in your tire. We saw 2 bikes with ripped up flat tires. One we talked to had to limp back to Prudhoe and get another tire flown in.
Where to next Dawson ? Did you ride the Denali highway on your way up ?
Keep up the good work
I like your comments about the big rocks , I could only run 30mph max on the worst sections on my DR would have fell apart , I would have given anything to have a KTM with White Power Susp that day. I also had beautiful weather , no wind. I was with CJ and Jazz a Aust hitchiker who we picked up in Dawson . We rode from Prudhoe to Coldfoot overnight . It would have to be one of the most special rides I have done . I was waiting on the top of the Atigen Pass at about 1am for CJ to catch up and the air was so calm I could hear his old BMW miles away , a truck passed by and the dust just hung in the air and didnt blow away. Its a special part of the world to go riding above the Artic Circle . Keep the stories and pics coming guys , and Ellen keep that bike out of the Veges . Cheers Toddy
